Bee over at Rasa Malaysia has a fantastic blog that not only covers Malaysian food, but foods from all over the Asian continent. While the photos, writing and recipes are superb, that’s not what I love about her blog.
I’m all for exploring new foods and experimenting with them (that’s what No Recipes is all about), but I think there’s a certain level of respect that needs to be paid to time honored dishes. I see too many recipes floating around where the soul of the dish has been lost in translation. Rasa Malaysia takes the time to capture the essence of a dish, elaborating on its variations, ingredients and origins, which is why it’s one of my favourite blogs.
In areas where she’s less familiar Bee asks guest bloggers to come in and take the reins. When she asked me to write a post on Japanese food, I jumped at the chance to talk a bit about my childhood, Japanese cuisine, and a bowl of noodle soup. What do these three things have in common you ask? Head over to Rasa Malaysia to find out:-)
